London Paralympics: JudoThe London 2012 Paralympic Judo programme - which features a knock-out tournament of five-minute contests between visually impaired athletes - will be held at the ExCeL Centre in the River Zone from Thursday 30 August to Saturday 1 September. Developed from Jujitsu and with its origins in nineteenth-century Japan, Judo is a pretty complicated sport for those not in the know. Basically, the aim is to score an "ippon" over your opponent - the one point which automatically wins a match. This can be obtained with a controlled throw, a mat hold of sufficient duration or an enforced submission. Alternatively, matches can be won with two half-points, or "waza-ari". If the games are tied after five minutes, then the contest enters a golden score period where even the lowest form of scoring, a "yuko", is enough to settle the bout. It's a one-on-one tactical and intricate sport in which opponents, dressed in pyjama-style outfits tied at the waist by a belt, grapple in both attack and defence. There are varied weight divisions, and three categories of visual impairment. Totally blind athletes are identified by a red circle on their "judogi" (judo kit) while deaf competitors have a blue circle. There are seven medal events for men and six for women.
